Extreme cold ranks second in the top of most feared natural disasters, followed by the earthquakes. Bruce Malamud, professor at King’s College London analyzed the collected data and ascertained that a natural phenomenon like a volcanic eruption (like the one in 2010 in Iceland) are taken in consideration as well as infectious diseases that could spread quickly.

In order to create a graphical representation of British concerns, the study contains a few representative images (computer simulations). Among the scariest ones we can find the Thames river flooding the Parliament, Trafalgar Square covered in snow banksand a violent meteor shower that hit London’s financial area.
